Salah’s three-month-old tweet proves accurate as Liverpool finish in top four

A three-month-old tweet from Mohamed Salah has been proven to be accurate after Liverpool defeated Crystal Palace to confirm their place in next season’s Champions League.

It has been a largely wretched season for the Reds, who saw their Premier League title defence collapse and put a spot in the top four on the line.

But Jurgen Klopp’s men have recovered well over the final weeks of the season, winning their last five league matches to jump above Leicester and Chelsea to finish third.

Salah has once again starred for Liverpool despite their disappointing campaign, scoring 22 goals to finish second to Harry Kane in the golden boot race.

Six successive defeats at Anfield in the top-flight ultimately put paid to their title defence ambitions as Klopp struggled to revive his team’s fortunes at home.

In the midst of that terrible run, Salah made a promise to Liverpool supporters that the team would continue fighting despite their poor run.

“It’s been a tough period for many reasons. We are champions and we will fight like champions, until the very end,” he tweeted after a 3-1 defeat at Leicester extended a winless run to three games.

“We will not allow this season to be defined by the recent results we’ve had. That is my promise to all of you.”

Despite that awful run at Anfield though, the Reds managed to hit form at the right time and confirm an unlikely place in the Champions League next season.

The win over Palace ensured they finished third in the league, with two goals from Sadio Mane securing three points for Klopp’s men.

In the aftermath of Sunday’s win over Roy Hodgson’s side, Salah again took to Twitter to reveal his delight with the squad’s character.

“We went through a lot this season. The empty stadiums, coupled with the great hurdles we faced, would have shattered any other team. Not us. We came third. And never stopped believing,” he said.

The Reds now face 12 weeks off to rebuild and recuperate before the next Premier League begins.
